A record number of runners and walkers turned out for last week’s Marcum Workplace Challenge. The weather was pleasant for the 8,400 participants – from 211 companies, organizations and government agencies – who registered for the 3.5-mile race at Jones Beach State Park. Total attendance topped 10,000.
Through registration fees and corporate sponsorships, the event raised more than $350,000 for three Long Island charities: Hauppauge-based Long Island Cares Inc., the Long Island Children’s Museum in
Garden City and Children’s Medical Fund of New York, which is headquartered in Syosset.
